Response to asked wrong question on oil paint

If I am understanding you right, you are actually asking whats a good base oil mix to lay down over the acrylic base?
And then apply the shadows/highlights onto this oil base mix?

If so, a tradional mix of oils is Burnt Sienna, Gold Ochre and White.
You can usually match these with Vallejos, so you can get a good base tone between oils and acrylics.

Also, if your flesh mixes are too light now, as most people stay away from out of the bottle flesh mixes as bases, you may just need to add some Burnt Sienna to the base flesh mix and then add more flesh+white to these.

If that makes sense.
